on-set production monitors

i tried the archive, but didn't find exactly what i was looking for. i figure i'll throw this out to the boards and see what you guys think:

i am in the market for a monitor that i can drag to the set to use in conjunction with my xl2 that will show me true color and exposure, as well as underscan. i've cruised through the b&h catalog, but can't really make a determination about why some cost 700 bucks and others 2500. anyway, if anyone has any suggestions, i'd very much appreciate them.

The main differences in price are the following features:
SMPTE C phosphors
underscan
16:9
blue gun (blue only)
size

The best monitors accept a calibration probe.

For your needs, probably look at something like the Sony PVM-8045Q, which is an 8" monitor for field use. Ikegami also makes NTSC monitors... check their b stock sales on their websites for a deal.

Don't buy used unless you get to test the monitor beforehand.
